Virginia Mallow

Virginia Mallow (Sida hermaphrodita) is a rare plant in the DC region, and has an endangered status in the state of Maryland. The chronology photo data is important to follow the progress of the Virginia Mallow population on Kingman Island. Fortunately, we expect a strong recovery due to this plant’s high rate of seed production and viability, along with restoration efforts led by our partners the District Department of Energy and Environment and Anacostia Watershed Society.
